Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Harlequin Color Block Gown


Size: XS

Condition: Very good

Breathtaking 1940s gown color blocked in a harlequin style. Iconic silhouette with strong shoulders and a slim hip. Dramatic shirring shapes the skirt where the blue meets the red and finishes in a seductive center slit. A luxe gold sequin and beaded appliqué accents the waist. The sleeves come to points over the hands and close with hidden snaps at the wrists. Fabric is rayon, red crepe and shimmery navy jacquard of a similar weight. Hidden side placket of hook & eye closures. I adore the Old Hollywood glamour of this gown, it is a showstopper! A rare & wonderful find.
